    Daylight saving time

    I am using Ubunto 12.04, and unable to get the clock to display the correct time after the clock changed on Sunday. I have ntp installed and have tried

    Code:
    sudo ntpdate ntp.ubuntu.com
    The current time is 10:33.

    Code:
    ~$ date
    Tue Apr  2 09:32:59 BST 2013
    ~$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata
    
    Current default time zone: 'Europe/London'
    Local time is now:      Tue Apr  2 09:33:10 BST 2013.
    Universal Time is now:  Tue Apr  2 08:33:10 UTC 2013.
    Please advise.

    Thank you in advance.

    Try to manually sync your clock. Run the following:
    Code:
    sudo service ntp stop
    sudo ntp.ubuntu.com
    sudo service ntp start

    Re: Daylight saving time

    Here, there's a the list of time servers for Europe region. From your original post I'm assuming that your time zone is Europe/London, so just replace the server in your commands:
    Code:
    sudo service ntp stop 
    sudo ntpdate uk.pool.ntp.org
    sudo service ntp start

    Re: Daylight saving time

    Try using another time server in your area instead of ntp.ubuntu.com. There are a few publicly available times servers in the London, England area. Try using ntp.exnet.com (a company in London) or even one of the pool.ntp.org servers, like 0.uk.pool.ntp.org.

    Which command is giving you the error message? Is it ntpdate or when you restart the ntp service? If it is when you restart the ntp service, then your ntp daemon is misconfigured. Look in /etc/ntp.conf and look for lines that begin with server.

    You have to replace the server. In the link I provided you, and for the UK alone, you have 4 servers:
    Code:
    0.uk.pool.ntp.org
    1.uk.pool.ntp.org
    2.uk.pool.ntp.org
    3.uk.pool.ntp.org

    Thank you all for your helps.

    I could not connect to any server that day, but Ubuntu displays correct time today.
